    The Cardinals have also been talking intermittently with the agent of restricted free agent fullback Vonta Leach, who was tendered an offer by the Houston Texans.

    Signing Leach would not only mean coming up with an offer to prevent the Texans from matching, but also making an offer Leach would find agreeable. Another anonymous fullback, Ovie Mughelli, got an astounding $18 million free-agent contract with Atlanta.


    Sigh.

    I'm going to be some kind of ticked off if the Cardinals offer him a contract with a "poison pill" in it... We need Leach to be a Texan.

    according to Mark Berman last night of Fox 26 here in Houston. There are about 4 or 5 teams interested in Leach. The Texans did tender him the min. of around $850,000 and have the right to match any other offer but will not get compensated if he goes elsewhere.

    From the report last night he is scheduled to meet with the Giants today and then i think denver then dallas and like the article above says get an offer from the arizona.

    Well, I think that we are either going to have to shell out more than we wanted, or eat it on this one.

    I checked the roster and noticed Leech was the only FB listed. I guess Cook caused me selective memory loss, lol.

    Over here.
    I think we should pretty much meat ANY offer that leach gets from other teams. I feel very confident about his future as an all around fullback.

    The depth chart stays the same until the next game. I remember Wells still being on it after he got released last year and people were trying to read something into it.

    I agree 100%, this guy works well in the system and he runs people over. If they don't keep him it will go down as another front office blunder.

    Cook is on the Texans roster. He's signed though '10. Leach is the only other FB on the roster - at least for now.
